Founded in 1893 as the Superior Normal School, the University of Wisconsin-Superior was created to educate teachers. Since our founding, UW-Superior has been a frontrunner in the UW System for its offerings in PK-12 education. Teacher education graduates are highly regarded by their employers; and many have won teaching awards at the district, state, and national levels. Education students work with children in local classrooms early in their program. Our Field Experience Coordinator assists in finding each student an individual placement in a classroom. Education programs are subject to change to be in alignment with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.  

Elementary Education K-9

This major prepares students to teach grades K-9 and requires the instruction minor. Additional licensure options are available in Early Childhood Education and Special Education.

With the K-9 Elementary Major, students may also choose to minor in one of the following subjects:

Employment Outlook

More than 90% of education graduates find jobs teaching in PK-12 schools, but some continue to graduate programs or the private sector.

While our programs are designed to align with Wisconsin state licensure requirements, many students apply for licenses in other states, such as Michigan and Minnesota. Students are encouraged to check with their state’s Department of Education to determine if there are additional requirements.
